I can't believe that after 21 years of living in Atlanta and enjoying the nighttime scene last weekend was the first time I've visited the Clermont. Yes as a lifelong adult in the city of Atlanta I've heard the stories, rumors, and snickers. Still I never went there even on hardcore nights out at the cove and the sports page. I can't believe what I was missing. This place is a dive with a capital D! Still there was something endearing about the dingy ripped wallpaper on the walls and the unique dancers who work there. This place is REAL people. The sign on the back says opened in 1965 and I bet the decor hasn't changed since then. I found the dancers quite nice, especially porsche, the other patrons were very friendly, the music was ok but mostly all oldies. Anyway my friends and I all came home with some sort of cold or cough and even one of my friends got pink eye. I'm not saying it was from the clermont but who knows. Even if it was the reason I would go back in a hearbeat! Totally cool, one of a kind, and sleazy cheezy!! Hurry soon if you want to experience the clermont I bet once that building sells it'll get shut down! I think I'm going to try the Tuesday night karaoke sometime!

Ok, anything that ever has an open bar with no cover automatically deserves 4 stars. I came here on a Thursday and they had open bar from 9:30-10:30. Got me feeling really goooooood. And when it hit 10:25 I went up, ordered myself 4 vodka cranberries (for myself) and they didn't even question it! So it was more like open bar for Tiffany until 11:30. The bartenders were great. Even after the open bar had ended I ordered a double shot of vodka (this time for my friend) and the bartender gave it to me for free. Awesome. The place itself is pretty small, but has a lot of area to sit down and chill. Definitely on the swanky side, and mostly filled with white people who can't dance. Except, me, I can dance, but not to their crappy music. Nooooo way. I hate dancing to techno garbage. Bring on the hip hop, you prissy fucks! I loved loved lovedddd the bathrooms. They were kinda coed but very fancy and CLEAN. Which is hard to believe when it comes to clubs. The stalls even had a resting spot for my drink. Perfecttttttt! I'll see you next Thursday, Vessel, at 9:30 ON THE DOT!
